No. Mike Weir uses S300 in his 3,4,5 irons and X-100 in his 6-PW. This gives him less flex/distance but more accuracy in his shorter irons. Having different flex shafts in your bag is common. The most popular deviation is to go one grade stiffer with your driver. After all, most golfers swing harder/faster with their driver because they are hitting a ball that is teed up and not lying on the grass. Some golfers play more flexible shafts in their long irons as well. It helps them get the ball up in the air. One note, if you are having problems getting your long irons airborn, then you may want to go down in flex on your irons in general. It is easier to adapt to more flexible shafts by controlling your swing speed than to adapt to stiffer shafts by trying to increase your swing speed. Remember, one can be taught technique and control, but speed is a natural phenomenon and can't be taught. Mike

What does RL flex mean on a golf shaft?

Will a stiff graphite shaft be similar to a steel shaft?

The companies that make shafts for golf clubs will have a specification listed on the shaft itself such as "Stiff" of "Juniors". We call it "Flex". The flex standard may be the same on a graphite or steel shaft made by one company and nearly the same as made by another company. It is kind of like sizes for cloths. Both graphite and steel shafts come in "Stiff" flex. Companies may use the word "Mens" in place of "Stiff" or "Juniors" in place of a "not so stiff" shaft. Consult with your local Golf Coach or Golf Professional and they can explain more about the flex in a shaft or other things like "kick points" in a shaft.

Would a stiffer golf shaft hook or slice more - Exactly the same shaft except for flex?

A golf shaft which is too stiff will cause a slice. This is because the shaft is too stiff for you to square the club face at impact. You can get custom fit to see which flex is best for you, as a shaft which is not fitted correctly can affect your game.

At 65 and using stiff shafted clubs should you be using a flex shafted club?

You should use whatever type of club shaft that works best for you. There are some that firmly believe that their distance is greatly improved when using a flex shaft, and probably the same number of duffers that will equally defend the non-flexing shaft. Age really has no bearing on which type - seen some golfers in their 80's who are able to shoot their age ... and with the easiest and smoothest swings to boot. Power isn't everything - proper stance, address and how far one recoils have a huge effect on the distance achieved.

What is the difference between senior's golf clubs an mens golf clubs?

The name 'senior' clubs refers to the 'flex' in the shaft of the club. Clubs are grouped into the categories that denote how much the club shaft will bend, or flex, during the swing. They are, in ascending order of strength, or stiffness: Ladies, Seniors, Regular, Stiff, and Tour. Since older players typically don't generate the same club head speed as younger players, they require a shaft that bends slightly more than average during the swing. The bend in the shaft creates more power by bending, or 'loading' during the downswing and then releasing this stored power at impact into the golf ball. It's important each golfer have a club set that is tailored to his or her swing. By measuring their average swing speed, they can chose the shaft that's right for their unique swing. Many amateurs mistakenly believe that by using senior shafts, they will gain added distance from the extra flex. The opposite is true, since the faster swinger will cause the senior shaft to bend too much, and the release of stored power will occur after impact, causing a loss of both distance and accuracy.

How does one know what flex to use for golf clubs?

There is no exact science, the flex of shaft you need corresponds to your swing speed. The faster your swing the stiffer the flex you will need. The only way of really knowing for definite is to get on a launch monitor and try a variety of shafts in a variety of flexes, all manufacturers will have a different standard for how they define each flex, so just because you are a stiff in a Diamana doesn't necessarily mean you will be a stiff in an Aldila. Also, shafts come in a variety of weighs, a heavier shaft will play ever so slightly stiffer than a lighter one. One simple way of giving you an idea of if a shaft is right for you is analysing your shot patterns. If you constantly hook the ball then the shaft could be too flexible, i.e you need a stiffer shaft, if you constantly slice the ball, the shaft could be too stiff and you need a more flexible shaft, i.e a regular shaft. Graphite shafts also different tips on them, a soft tip helps promote of higher launch angle, where a stiffer tip promotes a lower one. Very simple stuff I know, but all shafts stick to the same sort of ideas, on a shaft you will see; manufacturer, model, flex, weight and tip flex, these all help you see what sort of shaft it is. I would recommend if you are a beginner to use regular shafts to start with and see how you get on. I do highly recommend that all golfers if getting new clubs hit as many as possible trying as many different lofts and flexes as they want, custom fitting is usually free and the shops are more than happy to help.

Can a golf shaft flex be changed by lengthening the shaft?

Well it can be, but only slightly, you wouldn't be able to make a stiff into a regular etc. If you shortened a club, the shaft would become stiffer, and if you lengthened a club the shaft would become more regular, but you only make a 1-2 inch change to the shaft. What it does do however is change the swing weight. A lengthened shaft make the head lighter, and a shortened shaft makes the head heavier. All pro players like to have the swing weight the same for all their clubs. Apparently Tiger Woods can tell the swing weight just by swinging the club.

What is the difference between a hybrid and a utility club?

They are just the same thing. When they first came out they were known as utility clubs, they just had bigger heads on a standard iron shaft. But the soon evolved into an iron/wood mix, with a head which had the loft of and iron and the design of a wood on a longer shaft. There are also utility wedges, Ping makes these, they have nothing to do with hybrid clubs, it is essentially a gap wedge.

I also had that same problem with my lacrosse shaft and head. The only thing I found that worked was I had to force it on and bang the shaft on the floor. It will not damage your stick and should get the head on.

Does hollow shaft perform better than solid shaft of same dimensions?

Depends on what you mean by "better". For the same dimensions, a solid shaft will be a bit stronger, but also a lot heavier. If you were to make a hollow shaft of the same weight, but a bigger diameter, it'd be a lot stronger than the solid shaft.

How much do the clubs cost that PGA golfers use?

The clubs that the majority of PGA Tour players use are the same you can buy in any golf shop. The difference is they may have a custom shaft put in them and the clubs will be bent to their exact specifications. Some players may have custom built clubs such as putters and wedges which would obviously be quite expensive. Some players may also use prototype clubs which are made to try out a new design, and would not be available to the public yet. The tour players wouldn't have to buy the clubs, they would simply be given them.

What is the history of dunlop max power golf clubs?

They were developed in the 1960's in the Slazenger factory at Horbury Junction nr. Wakefield. The Manager was called John Reid although the clubs were the idea of one of the employees, a single figure handicapper. The set of irons had individual steel shafts which had a different kick point depending on the iron number. The lower the number, the higher up the shaft was the kick point (created by the stepped shaft diameter reductions). The principle, of ensuring that all the clubs swung with the same characteristics and feel, was brilliantly successful but expensive to manufacture.
